For Eric Trump, $1,000,000 is Just About Nothing…

The diseased apple doesn’t fall far from the diseased tree.

Eric Trump on Friday defended his father’s self-made real estate mogul narrative, saying the Republican presidential nominee was the epitome of the American dream for having “gone from just about nothing” to become a successful real estate mogul in New York.

The younger Trump’s comments follow extensive reporting of how the GOP presidential candidate got his start in property development in part thanks to a $1 million loan from his father, Fred Trump, in the late 1960s or early 1970s.

So there you have it.  If you had $1,000,000 handed to you to start off you came from nearly nothing.
